Feature: 21 Of The Best 7/10 Games

In Celebration Of Perfectly Average Action Games

We don’t do scores on RPS, but sometimes we mourn for the inability to deploy a 7/10. The ur-score, the most double-edged of critical swords, the good but not great, the better than it deserves to be, the guilty pleasure, the bungled aspiration, the knows exactly what it is, the straight down the line. One score that can mean so much. There is one particular…

Kane & Lynch Dog Days Trailer: Not Cheery

Well I'll say this for the Kane & Lynch 2 trailers: they're damned weird. They also make the game look about as appealing as spending a weekend in a rat infested opium den on the lip of a volcano. But they sure are weird. It raises an interesting point - the grimmest of films can appeal through dingy, murky trailers designed to unnerve the audience.…

IO On Kane & Lynch Scandal & Scores

Games Radar have thrown up an agreeably frank interview with IO Interactive's Jens Peter Kurup, the director on the now infamous Kane & Lynch. It focuses specifically on the game's critical drubbing - or, at least, perceived critical drubbing - and features some discussion of the Jeff Gertsmann firing over his Gamespot review of K&L.

Kane Enabled

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men didn't appear on many Best of 2007 round-ups, but it's nevertheless a game that no-one's going to forget in a hurry. We still don't know the full story behind the Jeff Gerstmann sacking saga, but whatever it was, it's hard not to think of Eidos' sweary shooter without a certain distate. (Coincidental aside - rare brain disease Gerstmann's Syndrome has…

Gamespot Fire Gerstmann

Gamespot may have fired their veteran writer, Jeff Gerstmann, over his Kane & Lynch review. EDIT: See below the cut for more details, and the pulled Gamespot video. Many sources have posted the rumour that Gerstmann was fired from Gamespot in response to his 6/10 review of Kane & Lynch, which coindicided with some big-budget advertising from publishers Eidos. We have a reliable source who…

Kane & Lynch Say, Screw Over Your Friends

Eidos have marched in, thinking Orangeboxday is an appropriate time for announcing a new multiplayer element for their forthcoming Kane & Lynch. And it sounds potentially rather fun. Because you get to stab your friends in the back. It's to begin as a co-op scenario, with up to eight of you teamed up against the cops, performing heists. Which already sounds a decent amount of…

Kane & Lynch Footage

I've not been paying a great deal of attention to IO Interactive's two-man shooter, Kane & Lynch, but there's every reason to think this might actually be pretty interesting. Hitman: Blood Money ate a load of my spare time this year, so I'm eager to see what IO can manage to come up with next. I'm also keen to see how this new fad for…
